Summer Festival Hairstyles 2010
Besides her trendy platinum-blond hair color, Foo (one-half of alternative rock duo the Raveonettes) also wears an ultrachic blunt-cut bob with bangs. Although those with fuller faces or angular features might think twice about chopping their locks to their chin like Foo did, straight-across fringe can accentuate cheekbones and highlight eyes.
Deschanel is the “she” of She & Him—the indie-folk duo that performed at this year's Coachella, where Deschanel wore her signature bangs-with-long-locks do. To go the lengthy route of the actress-slash-singer without drawing your face downward, be sure to add some bounce and texture to tresses. For Deschanel's loose waves, pick pieces of hair at random and wrap them around a large-barrel curling iron or waver.
At this year’s festivals, Deyn will stay super cool, thanks to a buzz cut. But at last summer’s Coachella event she employed a practical yet chic bandana to keep pesky strands at bay.
Welch, frontwoman of Florence Welch and the Machine, is known for her versatile voice, quirky fashion sense—and, of course, her fiery red mane. If you covet Welch’s eye-catching hair hue and aim to stand out in the music-festival crowd, consult your colorist to determine the best shade of red for your skin tone.
This Gossip Girl (seen here at All Points West in 2008) knows that a bright hippie-style headband and long locks are timeless.
To fashion sleek, straight strands like Szohr’s, skip a shampoo and use dry shampoo at the roots or flatiron hair the day of.
The Anglo-French actress and singer proves that matte, slightly mussed tresses are a definite do. And for those who have rocker-chic aspirations but shy away from thick blunt bangs, Gainsbourg’s wispy fringe is just a hop and a snip away
To complement her anything-goes ensembles (created by her friend, fashion designer Christian Joy), Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O wears similarly bold makeup—as evidenced by her appearance at last summer’s Bonnaroo festival, shown at left.
Annie Clark (St. Vincent)
Dazzled audiences with her mass of curls and cherry-stained lips. For carefree curls, amplify natural coils by applying a gel like Redken Soft Spin 05. After blow-drying models’ hair with Cutler Volumizing Spray, he crafted spirals using a small curling iron, then teased with a rattail comb starting from the ends and working toward the roots.
